Fast, tiny module with resources for Linux

This tiny 49mm x 44mm Linux ready module plugs into a user's custom carrier board (avoiding ribbon cable interconnects). Because all connectivity, drivers, smarts and high speed signals are on the module, the carrier board holding relays, connectors and signal conditioning circuitry can be a simple, robust, low-cost 2 layer board. This module offers 55 digital I/O pins, 8 filtered 10 bit analog inputs, 10/100 BaseT Ethernet, 3 serial ports with RS232 level signals, 1 CAN port, a SD connector for mass storage up to 2 GB, and more..
